IMPACT WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP STEEL CAGE MATCH
Sami Callihan defeated Brian Cage
MATCH RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2
We have seen a lot of Wrestling Companies debuting on new TV stations recently and for me this was the best of them all. The opening match was a good strong style match, we got a taste of the best women’s division in wrestling, Joey Ryan returned, Moose hit a hole in one during a very funny segment, Ace Austin along with Eddie Edwards put on a must see Street Fight and that was topped by the main event when Sami Callihan became the new Impact Wrestling Heavyweight Champion. Straight after he was met face to face by Tessa Blanchard. If they are going with this I am more than down with seeing this feud. Tessa is talented enough that I could buy her as World Champion. Something most companies don’t have the balls to do but it is something a lot of people want to see happen.
